Children from Wednesday night’s Kidz Club at First Baptist Church made Valentine and candy sacks for the residents of Hickory Manor and Licking Residential Care. Inclement weather prevented the children from participating in delivering them and singing to the residents.

A table full of goodies awaited the residents of Licking Residential Care before their Valentine Snack Party on Feb. 12. A guessing game to see who was closest to naming the numbers of candies in a jar was also played. Tina Wade won first place and Mary Bolton was second. TJ’s Flowers donated carnations for each of the ladies. Gina Whitaker donated cookies, ice cream and strawberry soda, along with cheese crackers. St. John Catholic Church brought gift baskets filled with more goodies. Even more goodies arrived on Saturday.
